Street Dinner: A Surprise Italian Dining Adventure

This is without a doubt one of the most intriguing business concepts I've come across in a while, and I would love to see it surface in every major city around the world. This business, Street Dinner offers individuals the chance to experience an Italian dining adventure, and it's all a surprise!

If you've ever wanted to dine without knowing exactly where you'll be, then Street Dinner in Italy is for you. What yo do is sign up for a dinner package and when you do so, you provide a mobile phone number to begin the whole surprise process. You don't get to just walk in and sit down at a table with this dining experience; you have no idea where you'll be having dinner. Right before your set meal time, you'll receive a text message and it will tell you where to go to have your appetizers. Once you've enjoyed a small bite and some cocktails, a second text comes through to tell you where in the city you'll find your dinner table. You might be dining in one major historical location, or a romantic setting. You just won't know until you find yourself there. The only thing you will know about beforehand with certainty is your meal since that's ordered when you purchase your package.

Radical concept

System must have:
GPS
Cel phones or satellite phone.
able to track clients.
connect to local diners etc & City Halls alone.
To make viable.

Hate to "lose" call for my entree alone,

Problems:
" Lose" call
"drop" calls from cel phone service
traffic to sites.
Locals OK
weird traffic patterns?
clients have NO Map of area.

Otherwise Unique & radical.

Must for couples only.
NO families.

Expand to other cuisines.
